Question: we are given 3 coins the first coin coin x...

Question details

We are given 3 coins. The first coin, coin X, has a head on both sides, the second coin, coin Y, has a head on one side and a tail on the other and the third coin, coin Z, has a tail on both sides. You pick a coin among the three coins at random and with equal likelihood of picking any one of the three coins X,Y,Z. You then toss the coin and a tail shows up. What is the probability that there is a head on the other side, i.e., what is the probability that the coin that you tossed was coin Y?
